THE POLITICAL POT.
Opinions of  Coast Dailies on
Political Situation.  „
\A
The Vancouver News-Advertiser iu
commenting on the new government
formed by Col. Prior says :—
" Our correspondent at Victoria states
that Colonel Prior is assured of a good
working majority in the Legislature.
It may be so. It appears to us, however,
that dividing the members on the lines
which either their action at the last session,.or their declarations since then,
seem to indicate they will take, they are
equally divided—eighteen on either side
—excluding the Speaker and the vacant
seat for North Victoria. Even conceding one or two more to the government,
a satisfactory working majority would
not be assured to it.
" It is not   necessary to do  more than
mention the names of this new Cabinet
aggregation—Messrs.    Prior,     Prentice,
. Wells, Murphy, Eberts, and   Mclnnes—
to grasp the idea of the character of the
men to whom   the   interests   of   British
Columbia   are   now entrusted.    But Mr.
D. D. Mann professes his complete satisfaction with the result   and   says that in
all his experience—and it has been long
and varied—he   has   never   had   such
tractable and teachable lot oficlolS^ll
present Provincial Cabinet    promises
be."
The World is also very strongly opposed to the Prior ministry, and thinks
Denis Murphy has made a bad blunder
in joining it. Following
ments on his action :
" As predicted. Mr. DenigJ^urphy has
accepted the Provincial Secretaryship,
thereby committing, in the opinion ofl
friends as well as foes political, a diplomatic error which may have the unhappy result of bringing to a premature and
impotent conclusion what might have
been an active and a useful political
eer. Even with his endorsement of the
stop gap, non party ministry it seems to
be the general conclusion that the administration, to which he has lent his
service and his vote, cannot
house division.
"The spirit of  revolt and  restlessness
against   make-shift cabinets is becoming
more intensified among business men
tetviewed.    They are becoming  heartily
tired of the   expedients   resorted   t<
patch up differences merely to allow
other band of politicians  to operate the
No definite word has yet been received
as to who will oppose Mr. Murphy.
The names of ex-Premier Semlin, Richard McBride, and Stewart .Henderson oi
Henderson is the only one of the three
who is a resident of this riding and he is
said to be very popular in his home
town, where a great deal of dissatisfaction
is felt as the result of Murphy's action.
Judging from the expressions of opin-
n heard, this place will poll a good majority for the opposition candidate.
AshcrgfJL ha
e all been mentioned.
HAVE A COPPEE BONANZA.
The Slocan Drill in a recent i
says: " W. T. Shatford, Con Murphy
and Dad Allan, of this town, are interested in a group of claims at Aspen
Qoaye, in the Similkameen country, that
will assuredly place them on easy street.
They call the group the Vancouver, and
they have opened on a big showing of
copper. The paystreak is 40 feet
width and goes right along the group.
Lately samples of ore from an 18-inch
seam were sent to J. McVicker, Salt Lake
City, for assay, and the returns -w
2.20 oz. silver, #2.80 in gold and 55.04
per cent, copper ; and 1.09 oz. silver
#2.32 gold and 18.01 per cent, copper. J
sample from the remaining portion cf thi
full width of the paystreak gave 5.20 02
in silver, $1.60 in gold and 6.03 per cent
in copper, which demonstrates the exist
ence of a big thing. There was no plat
inum in the ore.
" Two weeks ago an adjoining group
was sold to Indianapolis people for $1
000. and last week the Sovereign group,
on the same hill,, was sold also to Ind
apolis capitalists for #75,000.'.'

IS MINING $100 OEE.
There are now 15 men employed at the
Providence mine, near Greenwood. Dur
ing the last two or three weeks two cars
of high grade ore were sent to the smelter at Trail. The returns received for the
first of thtse were within a few cents
of #2000, being at the rate of $100
a ton for the 20 ton lot. The second
car of ere is similar to that shipped
earlier, so will likely run 25 ot
per cent, higher in value than that
first above mentioned. Sufficient or
another 20 ton car is now on the dump,
and this will be shipped next week.
These several lots of ore were taken from
the drift at the 60-foot level. The shaft
is now being deepened below that level,
following the vein down, and the
continues to look well and maintains

Church service will be held at Granite
Creek on Sunday, Dec. 7, at 2 p. m., and
at Princeton at 7:30 p.m., and on the following Sunday at Hedley City. Every,
one cordially invited to attend.

October Gave $85,000 As the Mine
Earnings.
The returns for the month of October
for the Le Roi as cabled are as follows:
k Shipped from the mine to Northport,
15,200 tons of ore, containing 8,676 ozs.
of gold, 12,500 ozs. of silver, 585,302 lbs.
of copper. Shipped from the dump to
IJortUpti^t1,809 tons, containing 394 ozs.
of gold, 640 ozs. of silver, 32,610 lbs. of
copper. Estimated profit for month,
$85,000."
STRIKE IN VOIGT CAMP.
A large body of excellent ore is said to
have been struck recently on the R. S.
fraction in Voigt Camp, on Copper Moun-
The ore body is of similar character to
that found on the Ada B., containing a
large percentage of iron carrying copper
Mr. Voigt is said to intend letting
Contract in the spring for stripping the
ore for a space of one hundred feet wide
by four hundred feet long. The strike
is important as showing the mineralized
area on Copper Mountain to be of greater
magnitude than at one time supposed,
The   fraction was named the   R. S;_in
known prospector and mining man, who
has for so many years identified himself
with this district.

A HEAVY RESPONSIBILITY.
Col. Prior's elevation to the position of Premier, and his declaration that he will aid in every way
the Canada Northern scheme, coupl
ed with the visit to the capital of |
Mackenzie and Mann and thei:
licitor, J. N. Greenshields, makes
it apparent that the resignation of
Dunsmuir, the selection of Prior,
and the attempt to form a government from the present members of |
the legislature vrithout appealing to
the country, is part of a carefully
planned arrangement for changing
the CanadaT Northern bargain so as
to includeJJie land grant which the
Dunsmuir governmen^w^s prevented fromigivigg, and incidentally for
the taking of the at present unprofitable E. & N. off Mr. Dnnsmuir's
hands_at_a^g«ui^lce« Mackenzie
and Mann were indiscreet enough
to express their entire dissatisfation
with the railway bill as it
the legislature, and intimated their
intention of making another try for
the land grant. Fortunately the
people are rapidly awaking to the
enormous value of these land
grants, and this coupled with the
expressed intention of the Grand
Trunk, railway to build through
northern B. C. without any subsidy,
is making the Mackenzie and. Mann
crowd and their minions in the provincial house anxious to get a last
big slice of the coun^, before their
power, is entirely destroyed by a
genera^f^lection. It appears that
the change in government only necessitates the opening of West Yale
lor which Mr. MurphylrtSr—The
presidency T5ftWT5uncil, being an
unsalaried office, makes it unnecessary for Mr. Mclnnes to seek the
endorsation of his constituents. On
this riding then must fall the heavy
responsibility of speaking for the
whole province. It.is no time to
traffic in personalities. The voters
of this. pdiag_jnustbg_gntirely
above such   considerations if they
SIGNIFICANT   OF THE NEW
ORDER.
The Vancouver Province is giving the Prior government a measure of support. As Col. Prior is
a Conservative and made a strong
bid for the provincial leadership of
the party at their last convention, it
is rather curious to see a Liberal
paper like the Province supporting
him—at least it would appear curious to one unacquainted with the
peculiarities of corporation politics,
The fact of the matter is the railway companies and bonus hunters
generally leave party politics to the
dupes who are foolish enough to
vote Conservative or Liberal because their fathers did.
The corporations, are sharp
enough to have a pull with both
parties, so that it is a case of heads
I win, tails you lose, as between
the privilege-seekers and the voters, in the average election.
Considering the cause for which
it has so consistently stood it is
rather surprising to find the Prov
ince giving vent to the following
opinion in a recent ^djjforial on the
proposal of the Grand Trunk Rail
way Co. to build a trans-continen
tal line, and shows that the editorial writer must sometimes forget
himself:
Without expressing any opinion of our own at the present time
in regard to Government bonusing
of railways, it is interesting to note
that this new road is to be Duilt
without any assistance of this nature, and that it is the first road in
Canada which will be so constructed. It is significant of the new order of things."
It will also be significant of the
new order of things that when railway bonusing and professional politicians are dispensed with in British Columbia, organs of the Province tribe will naturally disappear
from the newspaper world.

PLANNING FOR 6 MORE
Granby Will Then Have Ten Blast
Furnaces-
The Spokane newspaper men of
late have been after J. P. Graves,
general manager of the Granby Co.,
and have elicited sonde interesting
things. According to the reports,
Mr. Graves made the statement
that his company is getting ready
to install two more blast furnaces
at the reduction works at Grand
Forks, which will be added some
time this winter or next spring.
This will make six furnaces altogether. But in addition to this,
the company is also planning to
VvfJft^ffJraurhnKfife of these furnaces
the following year, which will give:
the concern a combined capacity of
ten furnaces, making it one of the
most extensive smelters on the Am-h
erican continent, capable of handling between 4000 and 5000 tons of
ore each 24 hours. ,-
The machinery plant   now being
installed here   at the   mines, when
- completed ;,and in.  running   order
about the ist of February next,will
hbe capable of'breaking down 5000
tons of ore per day. This inelud<
the 60-drill compressor and . tne
large ore crusher, the latter only
awaiting the coming of the electrjLc
current from Casqade to start crush
ing on Knob Hill ore, at   the rate,
needed, of  3600   tons   daily.—

Was Not Built That Way.
An IJhglishinan touring in the
highlands of Scotland, was traveling one day last summer by rail in
the north of the land o' cakes, and
and at one of the stations four farmers entered the train. At the
next station the door opened to admit a tall, cadaverous individual
with about the girth of a lamp post.
He endeavored to wedge himself
between two of the farmers, and
finding it a difficult operation, he
said to one of them :
' Excuse me, sir, you must move
jmafbrt'! Each seat is intended to
)inmodate five >"j*rsons, accord-
to act of parliament you are only-entitled to 18 inches in spSe.^ " ;

Imbecile ^ifway Policy.
(Canada's national railway policy
isrthe most beautiful example of
imbecility extant. By Dominion
statute, every mile of railway built
by a corporation is entitled to a subsidy. But at the present moment
the province of Ontario is engaged
on a scheme to build a" railway into
Temiscamang as a provincial work,
and the Ottawa government calmly
nforrns the Ontario government
that the province may build all the
railways she wants to on her own
count, but there is no Dominion
bsidy coining to her. Of course
if some corporation should choose
to do so it could parallel the Ontario government road and get the
statutory bonus for so doing. This
is how the Ottawa government is
building up Canada—and incidentally building up the Canada Northern and the' Canada Pacific. Hurrah for prosperity !—Sandon Paystreak.

"I'm reaily worried about Jim,''
said young Mrs. Dunsmoor.
"What's the trouble?" asked
her mother.
" All my care seems to have been

golf for fear he'd get the golf elbow,
nor ping-pong for fear he'd get ping-

" Well, he has escaped so  far ! "
" Yes. But I haven't the heart
.to ask him to stop playing cards,
even if jt does lead to his becoming

A Good Principle is Shelved.
Now that the great coal strike is
settled, the people of Canada and
the United Sta'tes%«ed no longer
trouble their heads with tW'rprbb-l
lein of trusts, unions, etc. Such
matters are of importance only at
such times as they cause sudden
and national calamity. So long as
the capitalists do not come into actual conflict with united labor, and
so long as they rob ' us quietly—
that is, without causing editors to
become alarmed—we are, and, of
course, should be, perfectly satisfied with our condition of peace and
good will amongst men.
The conflict that is but now end-.
ed was a dangerous one, for it almost started the people to think,
and actually to have doubts as to
the divine rights of the acquisitive i
man to that that he acquires. Surely it is well that Mr. Baer and" his
colleagues perceived this tendency
to independent thought, and^reauz-n]
ed what its destructiveness wduld'
be, and so took steps to soothe the
disturbed minds into a state of normal thoughtlessness.
No more will be heard of State
ownership of a public necessity till
the miners' union once more thinks
itself strong enough to separate a
decent part of their- earnings from
the coffers of their employer's, and
to direct it into places but little frequented by liknesses of either the
King or the Goddess of Liberty.—

challenged the editor of t^ejSand^fi;
Paystreak to give his opinion of
the Manitoba judiciary. He has
just done so, saying that " The judiciary which unseated Richardson
on the flimsiest kind of evidence,
confirmed Stewart in spite of revelations which should have sent a
whole posse of corruptionists to
penitentiary.
" The laws of the land require us
